Anatomy of a Music Video is a video essay series that dissects music videos.



My name is Mooj Zadie. I am a music video director and radio documentarian.

I make video essays that explore the magic behind music videos. In each episode, one director dissects one of their music videos. Our first episode featured Jake Schreier, the director of "May I Have This Dance" by Francis and the Lights ft. Chance the Rapper. Up next are the following guests: Daniels, directors of DJ Snake's "Turn Down for What," Vanessa Haddad, director of Big Thief's "Mythological Beauty," and David Scott Kessler, director of Sharon Van Etten’s “Every Time the Sun Comes Up." 





I work in public radio. So I believe in the concept of audience supported media. With your help, I can keep making the videos free for all, without ads, and, in return, offer benefits to Patreon subscribers.

I also like to share fav new and old music videos and further behind-the-scenes info with fans. So this page can act as a hub and keep all of the information in one place, so even after the essays are done, there's more discussion to be had.





About once a month. But, with your help, I hope to change this to twice a month or even more! Each video takes hours to produce, and anywhere from 10 to 25 hours to edit.





You are the only reason this project exists. Anatomy of a Music Video is entirely supported by Patreon.

Every dollar you give goes to improving the series — more pay for our editor so we can release more episodes more often, full transcripts of each episode, and downloadable links for all the videos. I want to make this project a place where we can celebrate music videos.
